Fighter jets sent to intercept Russian military planes almost 30 times

FIGHTER jets have been scrambled to intercept Russian military planes almost 30 times in the past three years, the government said yesterday.

The RAF launched eight times last year, ten in 2011 and 11 times in 2010 after Russian military aircraft approached or entered the UK’s Nato airspace.
